Michael Angel

Michael (also known as Saint Michael, Saint Michael the Archangel, Saint Michael the Taxiarch in Orthodoxy, and Archangel Michael) is a Jewish, Christian, and Islamic archangel. His name first appears in 3rd and 2nd century BCE Jewish literature, frequently but not necessarily apocalyptic, where he is described as the chief of the angels and archangels and responsible for Israel’s care. Christianity incorporated practically all Jewish stories concerning him, and he is expressly named in Revelation 12:7-12, where he battles Satan, and in Jude’s Epistle, where the author condemns heretics by contrasting them with the Michael. The Jews of Medina challenge Muhammed in surah 2:98 of the Quran to give them the name of the angel from whom he got revelation, and when told it was Gabriel, they respond that revelations came from Michael.
